It has been one year since we had the solar panels installed, and despite a few disputes numerous phone calls and they send an amended Account nearly every two weeks, they seem to have at last sorted out the Billing System.. Since Christmas we have paid for no electricity and we are $360 in credit. Admittedly it will take about 7 years to pay for itself, but electricity prices are going to rise and it is nice to receive a credit bill instead of a debit one.
After turning up sheer net curtains and sending to No1Son. I don't really 'do' curtains or dressmaking or buttons. Its nice to get back to sensible sewing like patchwork.
I can now show you the last postcards I sent. The theme was "Naked" and this is how I interpreted it.
The Emperor's New Clothes

This is the PostCard received from Isabell in England. She is the very artistic and clever needlewoman of the group.
Unadorned from a quote by Ray Thompson circa 1861
"Beauty when unadorned is adorned the most:"
and she sent it 'naked' (without and envelope) though the mail. And would you believe the stamp fell off just as I put it down on my desk.
oh and did I tell you how I luv my Kindle ... the last three books I have read were ***** thats meant to be Five Stars. I judge my books by how much I think about them after I have finished reading, either part way or at the end. These had me thinking for quite a few days.
How do I choose my books. I do like recommendations, especially from my cyberfriend Molllybawn. But I usually read the publishers review and then the comments made by readers.
I am starting to read The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton. This is one that I choose by the later.
